All of a sudden today I feel like being lost in poetry, nazm.. songs with awesome lyrics..

Humne dekhi hai un aankhon ki mehakti khushboo..
Haath se chhoo ke ise rishton ka ilzaam na do..
Sirf ehsaas hai ye rooh se mehsoos karo..
Pyaar ko pyaar hi rehne do ..
Koi naam na do..

I am still one of those people who fall in love with people who say stuff like this.. not the heavy hindi/urdu stuff that I would not understand.. but something like the above that’s beautifully woven with simple words.. it makes my heart melt..

Like in Zindagi na milegi dobara..When Imraan quotes this, I fall in love..
(This is by Raghupati Sahai Firaq Gorakhpuri)
Shaam bhi thi dhua dhua..husn bhi tha udaas udaas..
dil ko kayee kahaniyaa yaad si aa kar reh gayi..
kehni thi tumse jo baat..
zubaan tak aayi nahi .. hamari kahani to adhuri hi reh gayi !

——————————————————————————————————

I have always been a fan of such words.. be it in a dialogue..a song..anything
Here are a few favourites..

 1. Iss mod se jaate hain (Aandhi)

aandhi ki tarah ud kar ek raah guzarti hai,
sharmaati hui koi, qadmon se utarti hai,
ye soch ke baithi hun,in reshmi raahon mein..
ek raah to wo hogi
tum tak jo pahuchti hai,

iss mod se jaati hai.. 

2.Mera kuch saaman (Ijazat)
(This is a song where the female lead is asking the lover to return her memories, after a break-up.. So beautifully written.. unbelievable)

Ek akeli chhatri mein jab aadhe-aadhe bheeg rahe the,
Aadhe sookhe, aadhe geele, sookha to main le aayi thi,
Gila mann shaayad bistar ke paas pada ho,
Woh bhijwa do, mera woh saamaan lauta do…

3. Filhaal (Filhaal)

Dil hi mein rehta, aankhon mein behta hai,
Kachcha sa ek khwaab hai,
Lagta sawaal hai, shaayad jawaab hai,
Dil phir bhi betaab hai,
Yeh sukoon hai to hai, yeh junoon hai to hai,
Khoobsurat hai, jee lene de…

Pehle se likha kuchh bhi nahin,
Roz naya kuchh likhti hai tu,
Jo bhi likha hai, dil se jiya hai,
Yeh lamha filhaal jee lene de…

4. Bol na halke halke (Jhoom Barabar Jhoom)

Aa neend ka sauda karein
Ek khwaab de ek khwaab le
Ek khwaab to aankhon mein hai
Ek chand ke takiye tale
Kitne dino se yeh asmaan bhi
soya nahi hai
Isko sula de…

5. Chupke Se (Saathiya)

Farvari ki sardiyon ki dhoop mein
Moondi-moondi akhiyon se dekhna
Haath ki aad se
Nimmi-nimmi thand aur aag mein
Haule-haule maarwa ke raag mein
Meer ki baat ho….
Another one from the movie : Mera Yaar milla de

Maine pota-pota falak chhaana, maine tote-tote taare chune
Sirf ek teri aahat ke liye kankad, patthar, but saare sune
Hun mainey te ruswaaiyaan..

Aa dekh meri peshaani ko taqdeer ke harfe likkhe hain..
Main kitni baar pukaarun tujhe, tere naam ke safhe likkhe hain..

6. Koi Fariyaad (Tum Bin)

Raah chalte huve aksar yeh ghumaan hota hai..
Woh nazar chupke mujhe dekh rahi ho jaise
Ek lamhe mein simat aaya hai sadiyon ka safar..
Zindagi tej bahut tej chali ho jaise…

7. O Saathi Re (Omkara)

Aa chal din ko rokein, dhoop ke peechhe daudein
Chhaon chhue na..
Aa chal din ko rokein, dhoop ke peechhe daudein
Chhaon chhue na..

ere dohre badan mein, sil jaaungi re
Jab karvat lega, chhil jaaungi re..
8. Hoton se choo lo tum (Prem Geet)
Jag ne Chinaa Mujhse, Mujhe Jo Bhi Lagaa Pyara..
Sab Jitaa Kiye Mujhse, Main Har Dum Hi Hara…
Tum Haar Ke Dil Apna..
Meri Jeet Amar Kar Do

9. Kyon (Barfi!)
Na harf kharch karna tum..
Na harf kharch hum karenge..
Nazar ki syahi se likhenge..
Tujhe hazar chitthiyaan khamoshi jhidkiyaan..
Tere pate pe bhej denge..
Last but never the least
10. Ajeeb Daastaan hai ye (Dil apna aur preet paraya)
Mubaarakein Tumhe Ke Tum..
Kisi Ke Noor Ho Gaye..
Kisi Ke Itne Paas Ho..
Ke Sab Se Door Ho Gaye..
Kisi Ka Pyaar Leke Tum..
Naya Jahan Basaaoge..
Yeh Shaam Jab Bhi Aayegi..
Tum Humko Yaad Aaoge…
